Leeds Trinity takes 54,000 sq ft for city centre campus

Majority shareholder Karrev and developer Kinrise have let 1 Trevelyan Square, off Boar Lane, to Leeds Trinity University.

Leeds Trinity is set to open the city centre campus later this year for the 2024-2025 academic year.

LTU’s new 15-year lease covers over 54,000 sq ft of office accommodation across the ground and upper six floors. Property consultancy Knight Frank’s Leeds office advised on the deal.

The 1 Trevelyan Square building forms part of Karrev and Kinrise’s joint venture’s 73,500 sq ft portfolio across Trevelyan Square.

Deals have been struck with tenants including Pizza Pilgrims and 92 Degrees Coffee, joining Leeds’ favourites Do’hut and Things in Bread.

Kinrise co-founder George Aberdee said: “We are delighted to have signed Leeds Trinity University at 1 Trevelyan Square. It has been a pleasure working with the University to deliver the first phase of their state-of-the-art, sustainable campus in the heart of Leeds. We are confident the new campus will be a catalyst for the final wave of regeneration in this area and the wider city centre.

“We are proud to have successfully curated a community-led site with independent food and drink operators, spaces for local businesses, students and visitors to meet and unwind. On hearing the exciting future plans for the building, we wish the team and students of Leeds Trinity all the success for their next chapter on the Square.”

Jo Hynes, chief operating officer at Leeds Trinity University, added: “Our City Campus will provide a range of learning spaces, study spaces and specialist facilities, including a trading room, board room and business engagement centre, law court and custody suite, and specialist labs for our Computer Science and Construction and the Built Environment courses.

“Students will also have access to study resources and a wide range of study and open learning spaces to support collaborative working.”

Hynes said the facility will complement the main campus in Horsforth.

Eamon Fox, partner at Knight Frank, added: “The renaissance of Boar Lane continues apace. This historic street and this magnificent building are a fitting location for Leeds Trinity, while this inward investment into Leeds proves, once again, this flourishing city is a magnet for talent.”

The most recent letting takes Trevelyan’s square occupancy to over 91% occupancy with slightly more than 2,823 sq ft of fitted and furnished space and 4,981 sq ft of CAT A and CAT A+ left available.
